Israel-based photovoltaic (PV) inverters supplier SolarEdge Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SEDG) reported a soaring net profit and a record-high level of revenues generated in the first quarter of 2023, boosted by “strong global presence and execution capabilities.”
The company closed the January-March trimester with a GAAP net profit of USD 138.4 million (EUR 123.5m), zooming by 318% in annual terms and 564% sequentially, its financial report showed last week. Revenues improved by 44% on the year to USD 943.9 million, with the solar segment being responsible for most of them, bringing in USD 908.5 million.
An all-time high operating profit of USD 144.2 million was achieved, increasing from USD 50.9 million a year back. On a quarter-on-quarter basis, the positive result stands against a loss of USD 5.2 million in the final three months of 2022.
“Our diverse geographic and segmental footprint enables us to continue to grow revenues without being overly dependent on any single market or segment,” said CEO Zvi Lando.
